Srinagar: India’s Home minister Rajnath Singh, who is on two-day visit to Kashmir, said on Thursday again that the BJP-led government is ready to hold a dialogue within the ambit of “Kashmiriyat” “Insaniyat” and “Jamhooriyat”.
Singh, who is a on a second visit during the raging anti-India uprising, said India would never think of Kashmir’s future outside India.
“We can never think of Kashmir’s future without India. India’s future is linked with Kashmir’s future,” he said.
According to Singh, 20 delegations met him during his visit and “they want peace.”
“We are also sad about the situation in Kashmir. That’s why I tweeted yesterday and welcomed those who are ready to talk,” he added.
Singh said entire India feels “pained” whenever a Kashmiri is killed.
“Can’t we take Kashmir out of this situation? I appeal all Kashmiri brothers and sisters to not play with the future of our Kashmiri youth. Can they guarantee the future of the youth?” he said.
He said the pellet guns, which was touted as a non-lethal weapon, would be replaced with an alternative shortly.
Also, an all-party delegation would visit Kashmir for which preparation has to be there so that they can talk to people, he said.
“Forces have been directed to maintain restraint and I learnt they are maintaining it. Above 4500 forces were injured. But I appeal people should not forget the role played by security forces during the 2014 floods,” he added.
